914 rebuild

hay guys,
building a 914 4 engine. It;s a 1.8 w/ fuel injection. I've been reasearching around and i'm gonna swap over to carbs. I purschased a set of NPR 1.8 pistons and cylinders. They are oversized and spec out at like 1.98. so almost 2.0 but i'm looking for a cam to use. This will just be a crusing car, not a track car. i would like a cam moderate in price but i want the most bang for my buck. i don't want to have to machine anything, just drop and go. I got my old stock heads refurbished with new valve seats, valve springs, and rockers on them. They are not oversized valves just the stock specs. So i need some help on a good, powerful, hopefully cheap in price camshaft. CAN ANYONE HELP ME!!!!!!
thanx-jim morrison :

96mm pistons and cylinders would give you 1910cc displacement, a popular size.

Try the Web-Cam #86 grind. It is supposed to work quite well for carb'ed cars. Good all-around performance; you don't give up much bottom-end torque and you get some top-end power.

Nothing more than you'd have to do in any engine rebuild.

I have an E cam and lifters for sale.... something like 280 duration if i remember correctly. Worked amazing with my 2.0 motor w 1.8 heads, only 5K miles on it. $130.
